The breakfasts were delicious and Malcolm and Jennifer were extremely warm and friendly with Malcolm giving me some great tips of where to go walking. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting... More

As a group we have visited the Lairbeck for 7 years in October, each time we have been warmly welcomed and had great service. The breakfast is able to be tailored to your requirements and As I am known as a trencherman I feel that I was fed sufficiently. We have already provisionally booked for 2014.

We have been returning to the Lairbeck for a number of years - it is a small family run Victorian hotel with plenty of character. The owners are extremely hospitable and you are made to feel very welcome. They are both very knowledgeable of the area and keen to pass on information as required. The rooms are spotless and in...

The hotel is overpriced at £132 a night, we stayed in the family room which was very outdated. The building is lovely and in a beautiful location, but so are many more hotels and guest houses at better prices. I found malcolm on our arrival a little cold and bewildered. The breakfast was average with minimal portions which did not... More

Thank you for your review. We notice that you scored us 'good' on location, sleep quality and service and 'excellent' on cleanliness. Rooms & value were the two aspects scored 'average' so it is difficult to understand how you scored us average overall and how you arrived at the heading to your review. I was puzzled when you arrived at... More

When we arrived, Malcolm, the owner, greeted us very cordially. The room that we had, the "Drawing Room" was excellent in size, furnishing, decoration, fitments and above all, cleanliness. Breakfast in the morning was good, everything cooked well with good ingredients. Malcolm and his wife were really nice, not in your face, but there if you needed them. They were... More

'We stayed one night July 2013 and had a cordial welcome from our hosts. The hotel is full of character. Prospective guests should understand that this is an old country house and rooms retain their original character, such as low ceilings. Our top floor room was the Maid\'s Room.
